Solar Radiation Sensors are used to measure the power of the light and heat from the sun. There are two primary types of Solar Radiation Sensors; PAR Sensors and Pyranometers.
Solar radiation sensors measure solar energy and alert the user when solar intensity reaches a predetermined threshold level. This can be useful for controlling solar powered equipment and systems such as solar lighting and solar panels.
Solar Radiation Sensors are commonly used in climatology, meteorology, building physics and solar energy studies. They are also used in weather stations and are usually installed in a horizontal manner near solar panels.
Experts in the fields of meteorology, building physics, climatology, and solar energy generally rely on state-of-the-art solar sensors the most. However, these sensors also aid weather stations.
Usually, solar radiation sensors get installed horizontally and within close proximity to solar panels. At Comptus, we have the following four outstanding products:
